Paper Title:
Effect of Sr + RE Combination Modifier on Microstructure and Mechanical Properties of Al-40 Wt% Si Alloy
  Abstract

The effect of the Sr + RE complex modifications on microstructure and mechanical properties of Al-40 wt% Si alloy were investigated. The results show that Sr + RE complex modification not only on primary silicon and eutectic silicon with modification, but also on dendrite α significantly refine. When the addition of RE remain unchanged, with increasing of the addition of Sr, the primary silicon firstly changes from polygonal block or large plate to small block, then to large polygonal block, edge and corner passivations. The eutectic silicon firstly changes into a fine start with a long needle-like fibrous or branched further to a short stubby dendrite or worm-like, The eutectic silicon changes from needle to a fibrous sheet plus short rod, then to short rod end for the dense, or even granular. The dendrite α changes from highly developed dendritic to equiaxed and uniform distribution. In addition, with increasing of the addition of Sr, the mechanical properties has been significantly improved, tensile strength increased by 37%, elongation is more than double, the hardness increased by 21%. When the Sr addition is between 0.05 wt% and 0.077 wt%, the microstructure and mechanical properties are the best.
